Cleaning sandblasted finish


#1

How do I clean a ring that has a sandblasted finish. It has tarnished
and looks gray (dirty).

Any suggestions?

If it is silver use a silver dip aka Tarnex or use the aluminum foil
baking soda trick (look at the Orchid Archives) to remove tarnish
then brush with a tooth brush and damp baking soda powder to do final
brightening.

Hi Lani;

Try electrocleaner, if that doesn’t work, you’ll probably have to
sand blast it anew.

Brass brush and pumice powder. If the ring is sterling, light with
the brass brush or use a stiff bristle brush that is not metal.
